Whenever I start to play the sad game of Regrets, wishing I’d never met certain people, or that I hadn’t allowed certain events to unfold as they did, I have to remind myself that if it wasn’t for living through those things, then I wouldn’t be me exactly.
Any of the achievements I now have, and certainly all of the wisdom, are thanks to the hard lessons I learned along the road of my life. In the end, those hard times all turned out to be blessings in disguise.
Most of them may have been in some pretty ugly disguises, but they were blessings nonetheless. It’s important to remember that.
It’s not necessary to look back too often, but if you do, don’t waste your time looking back for regrets. Instead, look back for the blessings.
